Bush has made a decision to stop seeking additional medical attention and instead will seek comfort care at home.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush's health is failing, and she has opted to no longer be hospitalized, a family spokesman announced Sunday.

CNN reported that Bush was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure. She has been treated for decades for Graves' disease, which is a thyroid condition.

The brief statement did not indicate the nature of Bush's illness but said that she had had a series of recent hospitalizations, noted Reuters.

"She is surrounded by a family she adores and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving", the statement added.

Both Barbara Bush and her husband, who live in Texas, have confronted numerous medical difficulties in recent years.

McGrath did not elaborate on Bush's health problems.
